Disney still to announce an extension to park closures as 'Stay at Home' orders come into effect

Mar 27, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

'Stay at Home' orders to control coronavirus are now in effect for both Orange and Osceola counties, covering all of Walt Disney World's property.

In a memo to Cast Members, Disney is still expecting essential function Cast Members to continue to go to work during the 'Stay at Home' period, including Animal Care and Security Cast Members.

The company is yet to make any further comment on extending the closure of its theme park and resorts hotels, with just a few days remaining until the end of the announced closure period on March 31.

The county 'Stay at Home' orders are in effect until April 9, which means we can expect a closure to remain in effect until at least then, and likely beyond.

Tokyo Disney Resort has this morning announced an extension to its planned closure, taking it to an April 20 planned reopening. Universal Studios Orlando has announced a closure through to April 19 2020.

Which is why I am not going to fly to my Dad’s on Wednesday, like we had planned. Still cranky about it.

I'm afraid what it's going to look like in a few days due to the amount of people traveling for Thanksgiving.

I will triple check my paperwork, but was not mentioned to me at any time I recall. I had no plans to take them as I've heard mixed results on those doing the tests anyway so it could've not been in my memory because I didn't plan to do it. I have 4 copies as they added to the trial each time I went in. So I'll go through one soon for you. Thanks! I would have missed it.

There's something about Dr. Fauci which makes me want to put my complete confidence in him... I see it now. It's the mask. He's wearing two of them.

(Often misplaced) optimism has helped me get through these last 8 months. :)

A few people here have been part of the trials. @helenabear or @Disney Experience can probably answer this question for both the Moderna and Pfizer trials.

I forget what she said but she goes back in February to see if she’s still immune I believe.
